Breakfast at The Boot, Sarratt (20/09/16)

Fancying a big Sunday brunch we headed out to Sarratt, a village a short drive north-west of Watford. It’s a lovely setting, with wide lawns bisecting picture-postcard cottages (apparently it’s used a lot for TV filming).

A few pubs lie along the main drag, but we chose The Boot, a finalist in the Great British Pub Awards 2016, after reading reviews online.

Entrance to the very large beer garden at the rear of The Boot.

As it was a sunny day we chose to sit in the huge family area/beer garden out the back. It was still a bit wet from overnight rain so our little one couldn’t make best use of the climbing frame, but loved tearing about over the large lawn. It was quiet the day we went, but you could see what a great venue it would be for lunches or evening drinks with friends.

The climbing frame. There are also goals for small games of football.

The full English breakfast (see below) was hearty but a little disappointing in areas. We’re both ‘with beans’ people and a ramekin seemed a little small amongst the other items.

Best was the black pudding, which made up for the slightly lacklustre sausages. All-in-all a 6.5-7/10.

The full English: great black pudding, so-so sausages.

The pub serves a number of local ales: something to look forward to on our next visit!

It’s a lovely drive out to Sarratt – a reminder of how accessible the great Herts countryside is from Watford.
